Does anyone know when the 8000HD will be coming to Los Angeles area? Preferably in Orange County.


I read somewhere on this board that if you ask the Cable Company (Time Warner) they might allow you to beta test (wouldn't that be cool).


Anyway, getting my HDTV next week and will have to settle for the regular SA 8000 until this happens.


Any Updates?

Bad news.


Here's the response I got via E-mail when asking them about the 8000 in OC, and I did ask about the beta testing issue as well.

Thanks,


That's about what I expected. There is no way my wife is going to let me replace our DVR with the HD box. I also refuse to pay Time Warner an additonal 5.95 / mo for another box. Oh well, August is my birthday month... so I guess I'll get HD for my b-day.

...$5.90 is pretty dang cheap for our hobby (relative to what we spend on our display and sound hardware). Go ahead and splurge!
